Sunset from the front stairs of the Vednata Temple in Montecito. This little temple out in the hilss above Montecito has some of the best views anywhere. In the winter the sun sets in the area of the Santa Barbara Harbor and the wharf. But closer to the temple the beautiful grounds make for a very peaceful place to spend the evening.

Vedanta Temple View
The view from the Vedanta Temple steps in Montecito during a particularly amazing sunset. From this spot you can clearly see the Santa Barbara Harbor and Stearns Wharf in the distance. The evening this was taken the weather in the hills above Montecito was changing quickly and it looked like you could reach up and touch those clouds.

Montecito Hills Sunset
This is the view from the Montecito hills looking toward Santa Barbara. The evening I took this I had been exploring the nursuries in Carpenteria. On the way home it looked like the clouds were going to put on quite a show so we drove up into the hills to find a good spot. This is from the parkeing lot of the Vedanta Temple, a very fitting place to watch such a peaceful and beautiful scene.

Sunset at the Vedanta Temple Planet View
This is a beautiful spot in the Montecito hills, made even more beautiful by the amazing sunset. 360 degree photos allow for fun with different projections, this planet view (or stereographic) projection is one of the most fun.

Vedanta Temple Sunset Panorama
One of the many beautiful images I can credt to feedback from kind people
around Santa Barbara who read one of the various sites (Santa Barbara View) I contribute to.
I found out about this spot about a year ago and I have been there several
times, but the evening I took this shot was the best by far. In fact it was
one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.
If you have a spot around Santa Barbara County you would love to see I would love to hear about it. Just post it here or the main contact page on my site.
